Every 30 seconds a child is diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition.
These kids are scared, lonely, and missing out on all of the things that make being a kid fun.
That’s where Starlight comes in.
We deliver happiness to seriously ill children and their families at more than 800 children’s hospitals and health care facilities in the US.
Our state-of-the-art programs like Starlight Virtual Reality, Starlight Hospital Wear, and Starlight Gaming entertain, distract, and inspire hospitalized kids.
Since 1982, Starlight has brought smiles to more than 16 million seriously ill children and their families.
